A Gekko - Fixed, Simplified, and Plated by CodeCreations Aug 22, 2012

Description

Guru's excellent "A Gekko" model turned out to be a pretty popular print in my kids' school, and so I fixed it up a bit, simplified it, and plated it.

* A little taller.
* Legs are a bit thicker.
* Flattened at the bottom.
* Much simpler -- from about 16,400 vertices to 410 (simplest), and 1.5MB to 40K.
* Defects were repaired (e.g. you can now render it with OpenSCAD)
* Repair fixes some odd slicing issues (I was getting only three toes on the back left leg)

The plate of eight prints with tails pointing in, which I find helpful for first layer adhesion.
